FANS NOTED THEIR SIMILARITIES

Fans inundated the comments section with positive remarks for the actress, who was recently honored with a Fashion Icon Award at the 2020 People's Choice Awards.

One admiring fan noted that Ross's dad was handsome. Another said that the actress looked just like her dad. One said the good-looking father-daughter duo looked like twins.

It's not the first time Ross showed off the affection between her and her dad, who is a music executive. Back in 2017, Ross posted a cute video of them together taken in the market.

Ross wrote in the caption how much she loved him and how he makes her laugh. She added that she got her comedic chops from her dad. The post amassed more than 57,000 likes.

Silberstein shares Ross with Diana Ross. Silberstein and Diana, who married in 1971, also share Chudney Ross. He is also a stepdad to Diana's eldest child, Rhonda Ross Kendrick.

SHE GOT HIS HUMOR

Ross, who has been awarded a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Series Musical or Comedy, is known for her roles in the comedy series, "Girlfriends" and "Black-ish."

She said in a previous interview that she got her funny side from her dad, adding that she's grateful she got that attitude of her dad who could laugh at himself and at life.

Although she is admired by many for her ability to make audiences laugh, Ross admitted that she never considered herself a comedian or funny. She said, though, that she's "really silly."

Among her memorable performances was impersonating Beyonce at the 2016 Black Girls Rock! Awards. She has truly made a mark in the world of comedy.
